Z week in JK!

This week we zipped into our study of the letter Z. We created zebras on our letter card and
created a nice list of Z words. We had a zoo center and in our journal we wrote about our
favorite zoo animal. We also used paint in Ziplock bags to practice our handwriting.
We have continued our study of coins this week playing which coin is missing, coin sort and
graphing, and coin musical chairs. Please continue to review coins at home.
We have been focusing on symbols that represent the United States of America this week in
JK, especially about the American flag, the bald eagle and the Statue of Liberty. After reading
F is for Flag by Wendy Cheyette Lewison, we created our own American flags. Ask your son
about why our flag has fifty stars! We learned about how our founding fathers chose the
bald eagle to be the national bird and about what the bald eagle stands for. We learned
about the Statue of Liberty and completed a tell-and-draw in which we created our own
Statues of Liberty.
Thank you to everyone for making our Valentine’s so special by completing the Hearts for
Art chore chart with your sons and earning money to buy supplies for the Carpenter Art
Garden. We look forward to them coming next week to show us pictures of the kids at the
Art Garden and explain to us the work that they do there. This is a perfect way for us to
share God’s love and our own gifts with others!
Please send in your Hearts for Art Supplies and Valentines by Monday, February 10 th if you
have not already done so. Thanks!
As we look ahead to next week, we look forward to studying the letter Cc, identifying the
teen numbers, and focusing on Valentine’s Day.

February 14 – 17th Winter Break, No School
